SIX months after its release, Junior Kelly is still promoting Urban Poet, his 10th album. It is distributed in Europe by Austrian company Irie Vibrations.

"I have been promoting the album in Europe, so now we are getting ready to roll out the promotions in the Caribbean and the rest of the world," Kelly said in an interview with the Jamaica Observer.

The 15-track set features Everybody Needs Somebody, Power To The People and No Dig It Up which Kelly reports did well in Europe.

Kelly was part of the recent Rototom & Friends Tour (along with the Wailing Souls and Daniel Bambaata Marley) that had shows in Austria, Italy, France, Spain, Poland and the Czech Republic.

"It was an amazing experience, and I was very happy to be on board the very first project of this kind. It’s the first time that a festival has decided to coordinate a tour to promote the event, and we will be doing this next year in South America," said Kelly.

Born Keith Morgan, the 46-year-old entertainer hit paydirt in 2001 with If Love So Nice which was one of the top reggae songs of that year.
